RE: Avoiding Atlanta

I lived in Brevard back in the 70's working for RCA at the NASA tracking station made the trip over 276 to Greenville hundreds of times. I would think about going to Hendersonville to pick up I-26 to I 85 and plan to overnight before Atlanta. Best time thru Atlanta is 5AM to 6AM on any day. If traveling on Sat or Sun around 9am to noon is not so bad. As others have said a GPS to keep you in the correct lanes is a great help.

RE: How practical is the sliding bunk over cab in Class A's?

We have found the drop down bunk is great on long stays as extra storage space. Have never used it for sleeping girls like the fold out couch.

RE: Replace front air bags

I suggest you install the air lines for remote testing and adding air. I check the inflation before every trip and that would be a big pain by crawling under the rig to check.

RE: 2007 Fleetwood Bounder 32K electrical issue

If not the transfer switch or the power cord and you have a power rewind for the power cord the problem may be in the contacts of the rewinder.

RE: November 1956 IBM aanounces the worlds First hard drive

The memories come crashing back. How many have worked on a drum memory system? CRT memory? NASA had a computer (ADACS) built by Kellogs that used a delay line memory looked just like a screen door spring all of 1024 bits. Then later installing attached processor to add 8 channels and 256K of memory to an IBM main frame at a cost of over $1M. Guess I must be getting old.

RE: Inconsiderate engineering

What a surprise when I found out the fuel filter on my Chevy P/U is located inside the fuel tank! I was told this is now common on many vehicles.

RE: BAd driver

Just a thought, back a couple of pages ago someone mentioned being hit by a kid with no insurance and living with his parents. Here in Florida (and I believe other States) if you have an Un-Married Child under the age of 26 (IIRC) you can be held responsible for damages done by that child. Usually your Homeowners Insurance would kick in but this is something that everyone should be aware of. This situation happened to a friend. There 24 year un-married old son was living with them and got into a Bar Fight. They were sued and were found responsible for the damages. Happened to me, son 17 serious accident with major injuries to passenger in other car.I was sued for $50,000. I was was lucky the car was in his name and he had his own insurance if he had been on my insurance or if it was considered a "family" vehicle I would have been responsible. The accident was the other drivers fault but that didn't stop them from suing me. Since it was decided this was not a family vehicle the suite had no merit.

RE: FireFox error

I have had the same problem several times so far I can fix by opening Task Manager if I do not see Firefox running under applications then click on processes and end Firefox there. So far this has worked for me every time.

RE: Hot Spot Data Use When Idle

If you leave your browser connected and have a news connection like CNN it is constantly up dating and can add up the data usage in a short time

RE: On the road generator problem. Help?

Could be weak breakers on the generator or weak coils holding the contacts in the transfer switch. You imply generator runs and provides good power when parked!

RE: Outlook problems again?

I suggest you got direct to Malwarebytes if you want to download. CNET is bad to put PUPS on your computer. On the other hand Malwarebytes is one of the few malware programs that removes PUPS.

RE: Blown Engine, 8.1l

Oh man I feel for you. To buy used from a junk yard you have to take their word for what vehicle and year the motor is from some have good records and are honest while others are not quite so honest. Best of luck in the repair and getting back on the road.

RE: Brunswick, Maine to Intercourse, PA.

No doubt you will have to pay a toll but to stay away from the large areas do not go in the back way.

RE: info Chevy P30 hydro boost brake/power sterring bleeding

Turning the steering wheel is to bleed the power steering system. The P-30 manual says to use a vacuum bleeder to bleed the brakes. After replacing my brake hose I used the pump the pedal method and that worked OK.

RE: Mysterious Electrical Issue

A guess here but take a look at the fan switch and see if you have 2 wires connected to the "motor side" of the switch or an extra wire at the motor. What I'm thinking is the problem light is getting it's ground through the fan motor. That could explain the motor running at random as it is also getting 6V through the problem light when that switch is "on" A test would be to turn on the problem light and check the fan to see if it running at half speed or even slower. The logical explanation is the bulb is getting it's ground from an unknown source. Having said that many times electrical circuits do not behave in a logical manner. Whatever the problem let us know when you get it worked out. Not sure if you saw this but you might want to check for the above.

RE: Kitchen Faucet

I also replaced both of mine and the bathroom sink but it took me more than 20 minutes. CW is like any other business, depends on the local manager. Even when things go wrong a good manager steps up to the plate and makes things right. But then again a good manager is more likely to have good employes and less things go wrong.

RE: Furnace fan cycles after turning A/C off

I suspect you have a bad thermostat. Not sure about your thermostat but "normally" the G terminal is for the fan. You could disconnect the G wire and see if that keeps the fan from running when you turn the AC off. Disclaimer I am not a HVAC tech.
